After losing in the last four of the EFL Cup to neighbors Manchester City and in the semi-finals of the FA Cup to Chelsea this was almost too much to take.

United took the lead through yet another Bruno Fernandes penalty last night after nine minutes, before Suso grabbed a 26th minute equalizer and sub Luuk de Jong the winner in the 78th.

But they had done everything to score the winner themselves. As on Monday against Copenhagen they found a goalkeeper in inspired form.

Their feared front three of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood could not find the net between them out here in the two games. United had plenty of chances but the one that count fell to Luuk de Jong who had the simple task of finishing Jesus Navas’ cross to send Sevilla through.

United’s semi-final hoodoo struck again as they failed to progress past the last four for the third time this season.

After elimination at the same stage in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup earlier in the campaign United will have been hoping it was more a case of third time lucky.

Sadly it wasn’t to be.

Despite dominating much of the match they were left shell-shocked when de Jong pounced to end their hopes of silverware.

So close, but still so far.
